The fourth stop on our tour took us to Molde, Norway. This time we stayed at the Rica Seilet, a hotel worth staying at for the views alone. They definitely had the best views of the hotels we'd stayed at so far. It is shaped like a candle, and seeing it from afar we thought it would be a great hotel. The views from the rooms and from the panoramic terrace on the top floor are fabulous. When we were there, there were still snow-capped mountains, so the scenery was spectacular. The room this time was a huge quadruple room, it was great. There were dressing gowns on the bed for us, and the bathroom had a heated towel rail. As usual in Norway, there was a copy of the New Testament in the night-stand drawer, in Norwegian and English. I must also emphasize that at breakfast this was the only hotel we stayed in that had croissants. It appears that Norwegians do not really like pastries, I love them so when I saw this hotel I was very happy ha ha.
The Geiranger Hotel is a lovely hotel that is able to boast an enviable setting. The room was the largest we've had in all of our travels, but the views were not extraordinary. It has a pool and a mini mall quite full and stocked. The utterly charming reception staff and provisions help in any way I can. The indicated price was per night for a triple room, which still had plenty of room to dance. This hotel is open from May 1 to October 1. Highly recommended.
The campsite of Geiranger Hellesylt is a unique place to spend the night in your tent as you camp at the shores of the fjord with wonderful views. A number of possibilities offered is hiking, on the shores of the fjord. The campsite has its own little harbor and boats for personal us are up for rent at prices not to expensive as far as Norwegian standards are concerned. It is an urban camp, close to the town center. It is very quiet with all amenities like shops, restaurants and banks close by. The site has a huge capacity, with place for up to 140 caravans and tents. Basic campsite services, like toilets, a small shop and cafeteria, washing and drying clothes, a kitchen, internet and nursery, are available. This is definitely a place recommended for its location and the number of options offered by Geiranger tourism.
Thrallheimen is one of the (many) amazing cabins scattered around the fjords. Having a country cabin is a pretty common thing in Norway and, seeing as how they're a fairly well-off people, some of the cabins are simply stunning. That's the case with Thrallheimen, a cabin that has appeared in architecture magazines and has some of the best views found anywhere in Norway.
The house is set on the top of a hill near the village of Urke in Hjorundfjord. The plot was wisely chosen as it receives warming sunlight throughout the entire day and has incomparable views of the fjords and the surrounding mountains. In fact, the whole house is designed to maximize the views and has enormous windows everywhere. The best part is waking up, raising the blinds and seeing THAT outside your window.
Thrallheimen is located in what's known as the Sunnmore Alps, one of the most accessible hiking areas in the fjords. It's also pretty close to Geiranger and its UNESCO-awarded fjords and Alesund. The cabin also has a small boat you can use as long as you leave it with the gas tank full. It's really the best way to move around the fjords since there are only a few ferries each day and some of the villages aren't accessible by car.
This is, without a doubt, an amazing place to lose yourself for a few days.
